@article{Bhatta2021ModalDO, title={Modal Decomposition of the Linear Swing Equation in Networks With Symmetries}, author={Kshitij Bhatta and Majeed M. Hayat and Francesco Sorrentino}, journal={IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering}, year={2021}, volume={8}, pages={2482-2494} }

Symmetries are widespread in physical, technological, biological, and social systems and networks, including power grids. The swing equation is a classic model for the dynamics of powergrid networks. The main goal of this paper is to explain how network symmetries affect the swing equation transient and steady state dynamics. We introduce a modal decomposition that allows us to study transient effects, such as the presence of overshoots in the system response. This modal decomposition provides… Expand

Evidence is provided that network symmetries play a role in a substantially broader class of dynamical models on networks, including epidemics, game theory, communication, and coupled excitable systems; namely, in all these models, nodes that are related by a symmetry relation show the same time-averaged dynamical properties.

Graph partitions and cluster synchronization in networks of oscillators

This work derives conditions and properties of networks in which such clustered behavior emerges and shows that the ensuing dynamics is the result of the localization of the eigenvectors of the associated graph Laplacians linked to the existence of invariant subspaces. Expand

Delocalization of disturbances and the stability of ac electricity grids.

- Physical review. E

Delocalization is found to increase the lifetime of perturbations and thereby their influence on grid stability, whereas localization results in an exponentially fast decay of perturgations at all grid sites, which may lead to new strategies to control the stability of electricity grids. Expand
